The driver awareness panel is a device used to give instantaneous feedback about driving performance. Parameters fed back to the driver include over revving, harsh braking and excessive cornering. Overtime the driver will learn how to change their driving behaviour using an iterative process.
Driver Awareness Panel
CANbus data is collected for display on the website but what about giving driver's feedback in real-time whilst they are driving? The all new Driver Awareness Panel (DAP) does just this. It takes the CAN data already collected and filters out instances of poor performance and alerts the driver using lights and audible buzzing when higher threshold breached. The DAP calculates and compares this data against fleet and vehicle performance standards. This is extremely useful for those who want to give their drivers immediate feedback and make them aware of their driving style. One of the great things about the panel is that it is designed and fitted within the drivers work place with minimal intrusion.
Parameters fed back to the driver are:
- Over revving
- Over acceleration
- Harsh braking
- Excessive cornering
A box is fitted onto the vehicles dashboard to allow driver interaction.
- The Driver Awareness Panel is an in-cab device that uses visual and audible alerts to assist drivers in day to day conditions.
- By linking to the vehicles CANbus the on-board software translates any HGV vehicle type to give instant feedback irrespective of make or type.
- Where driver's use the device day in and day out and keep to the parameters set then this will lead to fuel consumption benefits and reduce wear and tear.
- Can be fitted in minutes and placed in full view of the driver.
